Dr Ng's research spans the entire research spectrum, from laboratory cardiac optical mapping experiments on explanted hearts, through to first-in-human invasive studies in patients. He has also developed a recent interest in applying AI methods and novel signal processing tools for diagnosis, tailoring treatments and risk stratification.
